Our frount door opens direct to the room ie no hall .
The house open s to living room level with kitchen downstairs
Which means that there is a door
Frount door
Door to stair s up
Door to stair down - kitchen
It's like a big hall
Anyone think of how we cd actually use it as everuone passes thro from
To from kitchen
Up down stairs !!!!

Comfy chair,
Footstool, rug and book shelves?
Make it into a reading nook.

Is it too far from the kitchen to be a dining room?

I mean, how many stairs, a mezzanine or full flight?

I had a room like this, it was fairly big 13' square. It was a massive hallway really but such a waste of space - sitting room to right, dining room to left and kitchen straight ahead with the front door at the other side.

I had a piano on one wall, bookcases along the other with two lamp tables/lamps and an armchair and footstool. It worked quite well but I lived alone at the time which is very different to family living isn't it.

I think it would work for us now though without a rug as it would be filthy in no time - countryside living, no footpaths etc.

I was thinking of making a room like that with a hall way at one side - the builder advised v it was it wd be a very small room indeed and a small hall and may be dark .was going to use as v small reading room !! Or just a chair , fire - has open Victorian Fire and a rug and shelves ! Got outvoted by family ! Say too many small rooms ! Our house is four floors but as the stairs run up the centre we can't , without moving the stairs open plan to bigger rooms !!!!

We have a room that's not quite a hall, between front door/proper hall and kitchen. We have a table/bench for homework, like a home office setup. It's where the noticeboard with calendar etc lives.
